Progress with my Pro Markers

Hi, hope you're all having a nice weekend! I've spent most of the day doing my post holiday washing etc, but I did give myself a little time out to do a card for the Passion For Promarkers challenge. I thought I'd give the sketch a go as there's no set colours this week, so here it is...


I've included a little detailed piccy of the image, I seem to be getting the hang of my markers a bit more, it's fun blending them to get different colours...


I can't tell you all the colours I used but I mixed them a bit...the boys jeans are done with Cyan, Cool Grey 2 & 3, Royal Blue and the blender pen. It's a case of trial and error for me, but I had fun doing it! The papers I used are Papermania.

Well off to get ready for the match, Newcastle start their Championship quest today (The Premiership is a distant memory now). I won't get upset if we don't win, but I hope that the team plays well, in memory of Sir Bobby Robson! What a wonderful man he was, I met him once when he managed Ipswich Town (my brother played for Ipswich in the 80's), but I don't remember much as I was only little. My brother always praised him. It's sad he's lost his battle with cancer, but he put up one hell of a brave fight.

Wow what a fabulous card, I just love your colouring, pity about your footy team though :) I am from West Brom :) it was nice to see both sets of supporters giving Sir Bobby a good round of applause and I think a draw was deserved by both teams, hark at me :)
Thanks for joining in at PFP this week hope you can join in again soon,
